It sounds good in theory, but I can already see NHRA penalizing Ford combos the same way they did in the 70's.

Did the head gasket go right onto the block??
Does it line up correctly with the head??
Sometimes the dowels can get "boogered up" and need to be filed a little on the edges.

An X pipe will always flow better than an H pipe. So given the choice between the two, go with an X pipe. And yes, the general area still applies for both X and H.

I just put a 275-60-15 on my 71 GT. Backspacing is at 4.5"
It will take a 295, but things get real close, and its kind of a b!tch to get the wheels on/off.
